1. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and when you joined IMT Dubai?
I joined IMT Dubai 6 months ago from Paris, where I was the Director of a Business School. Prior to that, my career was international. I worked and lived in Canada, France, Australia, Oman and Malaysia. Most of my career was in higher education, with earlier the creation of a start-up when I was 17 years old. Since then, I have always been involved in developing entrepreneurship initiatives in higher education and elsewhere.
2. How do you define the Education industry in Dubai? What are the opportunities and challenges you face in this market?
The higher education industry in Dubai is thriving and this makes it very interesting. There are two types of institutions: the ones accredited by the Ministry (like us) and the others, mostly as international branch campuses. The higher education industry in Dubai is at the image of the city: growing fast, very international and very oriented towards quality. There are plenty of opportunities here and it’s great to be able to be part of this dynamic environment.
3. We know that IMT is accredited by MOHESR, why is that important? What are the advantages of being accredited?
Being accredited first means that the quality of education students receive is regularly monitored in depth. IMT Dubai is audited yearly and any changes or new programs are carefully checked with the Ministry before we get their approval. This ensures that the education students receive is of high quality and on par with international standards. On top of this, getting an accredited degree is a must to work for a public or semi-public organization in Dubai. Finally, an accredited degree gives an easy recognition abroad if students want to pursue their studies in another country.
4. Please share your views on the evolution and innovation of the IMT programs. We heard that there is a new program launching soon? Can you share with us more information?

IMT is regularly revising its programs to make sure that graduates are always industry-ready. We get regularly inputs from our alumni and from our corporate partners and design our programs based on their recommendations. One good example is the Master in Supply Chain and Logistics Management that we are launching in January with the support of professional associations and which corresponds very well to the development of this industry in Dubai and the region.

We are also adding to all our programs various activities related to the development of soft skills, creativity, innovation, project management, professional communication, along with sessions on personal and professional development, career development, design of CVs, how to make the best impression to recruiters, etc… It is linked also to having lots of corporates on campus; about once a week, we have a corporate event to help students connect better to the industry.

5. What makes IMT Dubai a top Business School in the UAE and worldwide?

IMT Dubai has proven for the past 11 years that it is able to transform students into professionals and managers in different industries; our 1000+ alumni are a living testimonial to this. We have a top notch international faculty, 100% have a doctoral degree and they come from various countries; India, France, Malaysia, Lebanon, Sweden, New Zealand, among others.

7. You have been an inspiration for IMT Dubai since you joined, please share how have you managed to be a continuous learning expert to the staff and students — Tell us more about your management strategy in the Education Industry.
For the past 25 years, I have been an intrapreneur in higher education, always trying and developing new projects and ideas. I work for a business school, which is about learning and I apply that to myself also; continuously learning from the successes and even more from the past mistakes to make our business school better. It is very important to maintain a high level of motivation amongst the team members, and we have a great team at IMT Dubai!
8. Please share your experience and strategy towards the UN Global Impact Initiative just signed by IMT Dubai

IMT Dubai became recently a member of the UN Global impact initiative and PRIME; Principles for Responsible Management Education. Managers and future managers cannot anymore ignore the environment and the impact of their decisions on their surroundings and beyond.

Responsible management means that our students are trained on ethics, corporate social responsibility, and the future of the planet. It is a must nowadays and we are proud to be one of the few institutions in the UAE to be part of these initiatives.

9. What in your opinion is the future of education?
This is a very large question! For the past few years, we have seen the fast development of other forms of education, with MOOCs, and online learning. It has pros and cons and the idea that it would totally change the higher education landscape very quickly is not true for the moment. We still have a majority of students who want to come to a classroom setting and learn from and with their peers. New ways of teaching are of course important, and at IMT Dubai, we use them: we have smartboards, we use Blackboard, smart e-books, etc… We are very much aware of the evolution of the technology in higher education, but for degree-seeking students it seems that the face-to-face format is still in-demand. Concerning higher education in the UAE, we are very excited to be part of it. It is developing very fast and Dubai is certainly one of the best places for higher education for us, and for students of course!
